Elegant looks with modern functionality.
Contemporary fitted kitchen designs go a step further. They usually have very plain flat panel doors and employ familiar materials such as glass but in a more cutting edge way i.e. as the worktop material.
The appliances selected could be frameless and touch control because they have less visible detail, even the cupboard door handles would be sleek or handle free. There is often a deliberate absence of wall cabinets which really enhances the minimalist impression.
